Vasilia Scouras

Mountain Stage Associate Producer

Vasilia grew up in New Jersey before making her way to Charleston, WV. She studied art at West Virginia State University and abroad at the University of Ghana at Accra. In 2012 she signed on as an Associate Producer for Mountain Stage, a live performance radio show produced by West Virginia Public Broadcasting and distributed by NPR Music. 

Vasilia is involved with FestivALL Charleston, a 10 day, multi-faceted arts & entertainment festival and she serves on the East End Main Street Board of Advisors which focuses on economic development of Charleston's East End.  

When she isn't working in radio or promoting public art, she can be found hiking around with her family or supporting local restaurants and shops unique to West Virginia. 

R.E.M. made their historic visit to Mountain Stage 29 years ago this week. The appearance was just one of three shows scheduled to promote their upcoming release "Out of Time."  The other appearances included in the media tour were "Saturday Night Live" and MTV's "Unplugged."

The anniversary is all the reason we need to revisit their performance of "It's The End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" recorded live in Charleston, W.Va. on April 28th, 1991.

In our landmark 35th year we hosted 23 shows, in three states, with 111 guest-artists, one of W.Va's best liars, and we welcomed three guest-hosts. In this post you’ll find some highlights from shows we recorded in 2018, painstakingly narrowed down by our host Larry Groce and staff. There are two Dylan tunes, one Emmy award winner, a Broadway playwright, two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, plenty of fresh faces and some long-time friends.
